    The Southampton Solent University campus is just a 10-minute stroll from our complex, and University of Southampton is a quick bus ride away. Whichever one you’re studying at, Austen House puts you within easy reach.

    Extra-curricular fun is right on your doorstep too. The enormous West Quay shopping centre is within walking distance, there are countless great bars and restaurants dotted around the vicinity, and the city’s parks (Palmerston, Houndwell and Hoglands) are a stone’s throw away.
    Anyway, here’s some info about Austen House itself.

    First of all, you might like to know that Austen House has loads of social spaces. Nine to be exact:
    – Cinema Room | Black out room, projector and squashy seating, what more could you need?
    – Reading Room | Looking for somewhere quiet to relax? Our tranquil reading room will be just what you need.
    – Gaming Room | With 8 screens, controllers and gaming chairs, the only question is GTA or FIFA?
